Associated Press

A national teachers union proclaimed Tuesday "Christa McAuliffe National Teacher Day" for the Concord educator killed in the Jan. 28 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger.

The National Education Assn. dedicated its annual national teacher's day to McAuliffe because her "pioneering spirit . . . will help teachers everywhere pursue excellence," said NEA President Mary Hatwood Futrell.
